Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Rybakov told the United States to calm down and do some yoga.
“What advice can we give our American colleagues? Spend more time in the fresh air, practise yoga, a balanced diet, maybe watch some sitcoms on TV,” he said. “Its better than ‘cheating’ yourself and others, knowing that the train has left and childish tantrums and tears are not going to help,” he said.
He said the reactions by the US towards Russia are similar to “childish tantrums.” Recently, the US stopped NASA from contacting the Russian government except the International Space Station. However, Reuters pointed out the move could be symbolic since the only cooperation between the countries is the station.
